I'm trying to run the function activate() on the onclick event in my code behind.

Any glaring syntax errors here?

rblProj.Items(0).Attributes.Add("onclick", "activate('S');")

I think you'll find that you can't do what you are after.  Try it and see, I bet that onClick stuff doesn't ever get rendered on the client.  I messed with this not too long ago and both the radiobuttonlist and the checkboxlist don't allow you to allow additional properties to the rendered listitems.  After much fuss, I ended up using a repeater.

Those work great too, I don't know why MS decided not to allow you to render additional attributes to these controls.
